Resource System

Registered by Dave Fancella on 2008-02-06

The resource system is our own internal platform-independent, server-independent way to reference dynamic game data. This includes things like textures, sound effects, and game object models. While it would be straightforward to only focus on platform-independent path handling, we require a certain amount of information to be associated with resources, and some resources even contain game logic, such as maps. Resources can also be downloaded and/or installed automatically at the direction of a game server or the user. Therefore, we need a complete resource-handling system capable of much more advanced work while hiding underlying platform details from the rest of the game.
